Personal profile


Prof. Roberto Rossi holds a B.Eng. and a M.Eng. from the University of Bologna (Italy), and a Ph.D. from the University College Cork (Ireland). He is the Chair in Uncertainty Modelling at the University of Edinburgh (UK) and Fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy.

Research Interests

His research focuses on automated reasoning: he develops systems that aim to be robust and scalable in such a way as to enable computers to act intelligently in increasingly complex real world settings and in uncertain environments.

He conducts cross-disciplinary methodological as well as applied research in decision making under uncertainty, artificial intelligence, operational research and supply chain management.

He has over fifty intellectual contributions in flagship international journals and conference proceedings; I have attracted research council as well as industry funding in excess of 1 million EUR.
